Liberals Miss The Point On Blago-Obama

The liberals who supported the Messiah, Barack Obama, have completely missed the point on his connection to corrupt Governor Blagojevich. The left continues to harp on the “fact” that Obama had nothing to do with what was going on and that it was a shock to the Sainted One. Perhaps this is true though I find it hard to believe that Obama sailed through Illinois politics unscathed and untouched by the turds floating in that sewer system. But, for the sake of argument, let us suppose that Obama is clean.

The Blago issue has brought to light much more important issues than if Obama has been tainted by Illinois corruption. This entire episode has demonstrated that, contrary to his claim of change, Obama is nothing more than a typical politician. His claims of transparency are now null and void as he has lied to America and he has not been transparent. Couple this with the possibility that he was tipped off about the Blago wiretaps (which allowed Valerie Jarrett to conveniently drop out) and we can see that Obama is politics as usual.

When Barack Hussein Obama had the chance to be straight with the American public he decided to lie. Now, this is nothing new to those of us who have not taken a drink of his Kool Aid. He has lied about any number of things and he is covering something up with regard to his birth. But, when the Blago story broke, America had a chance to see the true Obama. He said that no one in his camp had anything to do with it, that no one had been in contact with Blago and that he was shocked at what was taking place.

It turns out that Obama had contact through Rahm Emanuel and that Emanuel was pushing for Jarrett to be given the Senate seat by a certain date. Emanuel was recorded about 21 times conversing with the governor and his aides. From reports about the conversations it appears as if Emanuel was the messenger for Obama who wanted Jarrett to get his seat. This all shows that Obama lied when he said that neither he nor his folks had any contact with Blago or his people. He later amended this to indicate that no “inappropriate” contact had taken place.

This episode only shows that Obama is nothing more than a typical politician who will lie when it is convenient and then change that lie when evidence shows that he is being untruthful. He is not the change we need because nothing has changed.

Not to worry though, Obama has conducted an internal review and concluded that all is fine, above board, and legal. Suppose the Big Three auto makers went to DC and said they had conducted an internal review and that all was well they just needed money. Do you think Obama would be happy with that? Maybe the next time someone is accused of a crime he can tell the judge that he conducted an internal review and no wrong doing occurred. I am sure this will be OK.

The shine is wearing off Obama very rapidly. He is not in office yet and has a mini scandal to deal with. He handled it poorly because he thought that he could do as he has all along and just bamboozle the media and his followers and it would all go away. There are those who are still in the dark and it is unlikely that they will ever change their minds about the Sainted One.

This is why the liberals miss the point.
